Book Review: Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson

When her parents are murdered, Tandy takes it upon herself to find the murderer, even if it’s one of her brothers…or herself. Kidzworld reviews Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson.

Death In The Family

The Angel family has always been a little strange. They have a “hyperrealism” taste in décor, they’re fabulously rich and the children have abilities that border on superpowers. But when the parents - Malcolm and Maud - are murdered in their bedroom, the children become the prime murder suspects.

Suspected of Murder

Their only daughter Tandy is determined to find out who killed her parents. She plays detective and snoops for possible clues. Could it be her emotional and artistically gifted twin brother who was looked down on by their parents; or could it be her younger brother Hugo, who has a physical strength well beyond his age; or was it Samantha, her mother’s live-in assistant, who knows far more about the family than she should.

Forgotten Memories

As Tandy investigates those inside and outside of the house, she discovers that there are many people with a motive for murder. Meanwhile, she’s starting to remember snippets of her past that were somehow removed from her memories…memories of being in love.

The Bottom Line

Confessions of a Murder Suspect is great teen murder mystery told from the perspective of a suspect. With large font and short chapters, it’s a fairly quick read. This book may conclude, but James Patterson leaves many loose ends, which will undoubtedly lead to a second book.

Today, several states had thousands of women joining together to fight against Trump. Celebrities like Madonna, Ariana Grande, and Miley Cirus showed up, some gave speeches, women shouted and raised their signs. Will Trump budge? What do you think? Should women be able to have abortion? Should Trump cut funds of women?

I think it loads faster, compiles faster, and is just overall smoother... The only thing that the Steam version has that this one does not is access to the 'workshop,' in which you can easily share and play other people's games. Ah, cool! X3 I'll pass on your advice to my friend so someone may benefit from it, as I don't use the application anymore. Thanks ^-^

He's the leader of our country, whether we like it or not, and we need to help him, as our government is based on the people. When you wish for him to fail, you're practically wishing for the country to fall... which isn't a good thing for the citizens o.o

I've made several top-down and platformer games, as well as one 3D game. I never got too far with my 3D game, but I have the basic movement down. Right now, I'm working on a top-down survival shooter game! I've done a bit of experimenting with GameMaker Studio, but was too lazy to learn the coding and dropped it :P My friend is learning how to actually USE it though. He always makes fun of me for it, lol. Do you use it through Steam or found the program and downloaded it?
